Mumbai, April 13: As soon as the Happy New Year Offer came to an end on March 31 2017, Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio launched its Jio Summer Surprise Offer in which the company waived off the monthly charges for the next three months. The ‘Summer Surprise offer’ aimed at providing users three months of free data and other benefits which they are getting as an introductory offer. However, Jio sent a message to its user’s mobile numbers saying that the user will get 1GB data/day & unlimited calling (Local+National Roaming) from 16th April onwards and will need to recharge in August 2017.

The company also extended the deadline for signing up to Jio Prime to April 15, up from March 31. “JIO SUMMER SURPRISE offer is active on your Jio number. You will now get 1GB data/day & unlimited calling (Local+National Roaming) from 16th April onwards. You will only need to recharge in August 2017”, the automated message stated.
